My Rumble Strip Mitts pattern, which was published in Yarn Forward magazine, Issue 31, December 2010, is now (26 May 2012) available to purchase as a pdf download. Use the buy now button above, or click here for more information.

The pattern is for a pair of fingerless mitts with both colour and textural interest. The mitts have a gusseted thumb and are worked in the round from cuff to fingers.

Other 4-ply/fingering weight yarns should also work well, especially those with more than 50% wool content to provide elasticity. To achieve a dense fabric, a smaller size of needle is used than recommended on the ball band.
